Follow Your Inner Voice: This is the second step on how to find your purpose in life which is to listen to your inner voice , this is important, follow what your heart tells, on one knows you better than you, so matter what you do or what you want to do, you have to follow your inner voice, your inner voice can help prevent some things if you listen to it.

Don’t Listen To Other People: Listening to other people’s advice can be the downfall of a lot of people, like I said no one knows you better than you, yes people will always give advice it’s what humans do but do not take everything to heart, take a little of the advice that you get (The ones that are good) and then apply it to your own.

Some people will follow other’s advice to the latter and if something goes wrong then there is no one to blame but yourself if the person that gave you the advice will blame you for it or deny the advice they gave.

So write out what your version of success and you can take it from there.

  1. Love these ideas. Particularly about listening to yourself and not other people. It’s easy to define our lives or purpose in relation to other people’s expectations. But there’s no point in being guided by others, we’ll only look back on our achievements with regret if they’re not what we actually wanted. The wrong purpose won’t fit us well either! But I also like the idea of pushing ourselves outside our comfort zone too! We only know what we enjoy based on current life experience. When we step outside our zone we may be surprised what new interests we discover which can help reinvigorate or redefine our purpose

  2. Stepping outside your comfort zone – that tip is the hardest one for me to implement but probably leads to the best results. I will have to read your post on how to step outside the comfort zone next. Thanks for the great article!

  3. All of these steps are so important and I’ve said a lot of these myself. I think everyone deserves it to themselves to find their purpose and passion. Thank you for sharing these tips!

  4. Fantastic post! I have been reevaluating my purpose in life lately as it looks like I need to make a career change. Stepping out of your comfort zone and taking action are SO important. Thanks!

  6. Love this! Especially stepping out of your comfort zone I feel like can be huge, uncomfortable but like you said eye changing 🧡

  7. Stepping out of my comfort zone is definitely something I’ve been pushing myself to do. I’ve spent most of my life hiding from great opportunities out of fear of rejection and being judged, but as I’ve gotten older and a little wiser I’ve realized that I can’t just hide in my little safe spot forever if I really want to experience all that life has to offer. Thank you for posting!

  8. All great. I think I like #5 a lot today. Setting your own definition of success is, apart from being a great mind opener, the key to many of the other steps. It is easier to step outside of your comfort zone for example, if you have already set the success level. Comfort zones vary of course. What I or you or the next reader would find comfortable will vary.

  9. Great tips! I love the one on defining your own success. I think we get caught up in what other’s definition of success is and if we don’t achieve that, then we fail.

  10. Rip number four was the best to me. I believe finding your purpose means you have to do things you only dream of but never imagined doing.

  11. The tip about being your own measure of success is such an important one. It took me years to recognise this! As someone who has mental health challenges, I always seemed to be doing worse and behind everyone else, but that was an unfair and impossible measure. I began to realise that no yard stick except my own had any true value. Once I saw this, l also saw how incredibly well l was doing, to not only succeed in study and work, but to do that whilst managing mental health, what an absolutely incredible achievement that is!

    Love your tips about finding purpose too. That can often be hard, especially during low times. But purpose can be flexible to fit our needs. On a bad day for me, my purpose is to treat myself well and do what i can. On good days, its larger goals. I think flexibility is so vital in all these measures. Thanks for a very thoughtful read!

  12. Very good tips. Quite often we silence that inner voice and so it is good to listen and to perhaps make note of how we feel in certain situations when that inner voice is at its loudest. I like that idea of creating your own version of success as we are so often living up to other persons ideals as to what the best version of our lives should be!

  13. I love this post. It’s my mission to help mums find their purpose to move away from being so frazzled. I love how simply you’ve put some of these main steps towards finding yourself again, especially not listening to what others think you should be doing!

  14. Great points! My biggest problem is listening to other people’s opinions…. that’s because I’m too scared to listen to my own. Something I’ve been working on. Thanks for this.
